Its 4 1/2” tall and has mold ran on th the top edge about an inch tall. Here is a close up of the base. The tops are Walnut FC and banded with a 2” wide piece of walnut that has a partial bullnose ran on it. Under the edge of the top is another mold that is 1” tall, its the base mold inverted. Here is a close up. Here is a...

Resawing done!

2128 days ago by TheKingInYellow | 2 comments »

Well, I spent about 3 hours yesterday resawing that Tigerwood, and I’m pretty happy with the results. If I had a planer or thickness sander, I would have cut the wood a 1/16” thicker and then planed it, but I don’t have that option, so I used an hand sander to take down the rough spots and ridges caused by the inevitable blade wobble. Today’s plan is to route the edges with the locking 45 degree miter bit, and see how it will all snap together. After that, it̵...

A short while back I found a large piece of black phenolic that was destined for the local landfill.I saved the piece from this terrible fate and turned it in to this….. There have been times I wish I had two router table to save setup and re setup time. I think this is going to work out great for my availible space and needs. I bought the fence at the woodshows back in April. The fence wouldn’t work with my old table without some modifications so this worked out great....

Norms Router Cabinet #3: The Electrical Work

2129 days ago by sIKE | 9 comments »

Got back in the shop this afternoon and after two trips to the orange box I got all of the electrical work done. I am very happy with how it turned out. This is a custom piece much different from Norm’s plan. The switch is from Grizzly, I have the 12/2 wire on hand, the rest is from the orange box. Total outlay about $38. The switch works great even though it is mounted sideways. Here is a view of the internals.Below the switch you can see I finally got the 17/32nd drill bit in and star...

The Craftsman's Path #46: Three Pillars of Design - Part 1 Function

2129 days ago by Mark Mazzo | 2 comments »

Building on the information that I gleaned from the Graham Blackburn workshop that I attended, I wanted to go into a little more depth on the topics of design that were discussed. According to Blackburn, there are three pillars of design: Function, Construction, and Proportion. I explore how the function of a piece relates to its design in the latest post on my blog. Thanks for reading!

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #35: Lets Test Art-Full Shellac

2129 days ago by frank | 2 comments »

Lets Test Art-Full Shellac ”All that meets the eye with shellac, is more then enough to sustain my love of this finish.” —-by flp And so I started by writing some thoughts of my own down on paper, where the proper thing to do, seemed to be to get out and do some more tests. If one is not testing….and by this I mean constantly testing their own thoughts//opinions and, the thoughts//opinions of others, then how will one learn. A closed mind is a sad place to beR...

Week 2 of my “Fundamentals of Furniture-Making I” class has ended, and things are really coming together. Well, not literally… everything is still in pieces.
